What’s more dramatic than a bride in a long veil or a train making her bridal entry? The answer is, nothing! From celebrities like Deepika and Priyanka to real brides, lehengas paired with a long train or veil lehengas have become extremely popular. Originally inspired by western weddings, millennial brides are opting to make an ultra glam statement with their wedding outfits these days. Here are some our favorite OTT bridal looks, that we thought would be selfish of us not to share with you all-

One thing we recommend to brides who are afraid of being able to move around in these outfits post the wedding ceremony is to create a detachable train that you can remove from your wedding lehenga to create a more traditional silhouette after the ceremony is over. You can always restyle the veil as a regular dupatta or simply opt for a different dupatta to create a new look. Would you opt for one of these trends? Let us know!
